I just tore down my second (first major) layout after 6 years of use. I made the mistake of using a combination of Homosote, OSB and various pieces of plywood in a basement that was heated only when I was in the room. On top of that all of the wood in the table was scrap of varying types. In the summer the basement was humid even with a dehumidifyer running. In the winter the forced air dried it out. The end result was a constant fight with warping over time.

Now I am rebuilding the top out of plywood and all of the framing from 2x4s. It is over built but will not warp. Cross members were added also to prevent the sag.
